This past week I was suckered into babysitting for 4 days straight (meaning I was away from my computer, my craft stash, my hubby and my cats). So, I took along my newest beads (courtesy of my loving husband and mommy), and made the following earrings:



I scanned just one of each, since I couldn't get any decent photos and the scanner seems to try to crop each earring out of the whole image.

Anyways, all the beads are glass, except for the dice & Asian coins. Those are cute little dice beads I found, and painted gold (they were lime green first). The coins came from Ebay. The glass looking hearts are cats' eye (very pretty in person).

Any comments or crits? I will be selling some on my site and on ebay. I will also be making similar ones for the earring binge swap Cheesy Thanks for looking!

Thank you both! I really do love the curls Cheesy I was playing around, and figured out that they looked great if I curled the eye pin around a vial (for seed beads). I hang them so they point under the ear, giving it an elegant sorta look Cheesy Plus I love that they are easy to make (just like the regular dangle ones), but look much better Smiley

The curling of the eyepins is brilliant...just brilliant!

It's amazing what crafsters can come up with by using ordinary household items.  Great job!
